TEDxNewport is a group of inspired locals who share a passion for Newport, RI and its diverse population. Some of us were born here, some of us are transplants, but we all feel that certain pull that keeps us here. We see our friends and neighbors contributing to the collective ethos in so many creative ways. We want to share these ideas with the world and uncover those ideas that haven’t yet been explored. We seek to stoke the proverbial fire and generate dynamic conversations in all corners of the island.
